Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin)
guided tour of the Catherine Palace with the Amber Room and admissions to the Catherine Palace & Park;
The Catherine Palace is the former imperial palace, the official summer residence of three Russian monarchs – Catherine I, Elizabeth and Catherine II, a masterpiece of Russian 18th-century baroque. You will see the Great Hall with an area of more than 800 m2, where the official receptions and dinners, balls and other celebrations were held, walk along the Golden Enfilade, which stretches across the entire palace and amazes with its luxury and grandeur, admire the diversity and richness of other rooms.
A visit to the Amber Room – the «8th wonder of the world», a pearl of the Catherine Palace. This is a special historical value, the fate of which is shrouded in thousands of secrets. For 70 years several generations of monarchs have been engaged in its construction. During the Second World War all the furniture was stolen and taken out of the country. Recreating according to the original drawings and sketches took 24 years of man-made and painstaking work of restorers.
Catherine Park complements the overall picture of the grandeur of the palace and park ensemble. All the components of the park – fountains, alleys, canals, bridges, arbors, sculptures, – are organically combined. It took over two centuries to form it under the influence of various park styles and the result is amazing.

My trip to St Petersburg was short but amazing not only due to the city itself but as well due to this Agency, Natalia and my brilliant guide Victoria.
I had only a weekend in November 2018 to explore this amazing city and very specific interests in art history and architecture. I did not have time to plan it myself properly, so I just shortly explained to Natalia what I would like to see. In very short period of time Natalia offered me a great two days itinerary that blended my wishes ideally - and for a very good price as well. Besides this, having my first experience of St Petersburg with my guide Victoria, it was an exceptional one. Victoria spoke fluent English and had impressive knowledge of St Petersburg, Russian art and culture. In addition, she was very passionate about both the city and her job. I learned a lot from her. The whole trip was organized perfectly and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am learning Russian now - I think this says a lot what kind of experience I had.
I am sure I will come back to St Petersburg and as well to this Agency that I would recommend to everybody who would like to have a special and genuine experience of St Petersburg.
When they say that they care about their customers' experience and that they have knowledge of the city, Russian art, culture and any other area of interest connected with their service, they are among the rare that are telling the truth! They really do. Besides they are true locals! They have an office in the St Petersburg and people who work in this Agency live there. It is not that their Customer Service is placed in the other part of the world while arranging for you a local experience on the other part of the world.

On April 27, 2018, we ordered a boat trip for a group of 12 French tourists. The trip was a perfect ending to our stay in Saint Petersburg. Tha navigations season had just begun and we were lucky with fine weather. It was a pleasure to see the canals, admire the beautiful streets and historical buildings again. Elena, the guide, made a wonderful excursion, all the tourists were satisfied.
By the way, we were late for the trip for 30 minutes, and I’d like to thank Elena and the boat crew for waiting. We’ll be glad to purchase trips in your company again.
